TMX Group Statement on Nelson Mandela

December 6, 2013

TMX Group CEO, Tom Kloet, today made the following statement:

"There are few individuals in history who have given more, accomplished as much and inspired so many in the pursuit of progress and equality. He showed the world what was possible and inspired a nation to embark on a new, peaceful path forward. The images of his release from prison, his inauguration as South Africa's first fully democratically elected president, and his many speeches, comments and lessons are embedded in the hearts and minds of all citizens of the world. On this day, all of us at TMX remember his sacrifices and accomplishments and we offer our sympathies to the people of South Africa and the Mandela family."

In memory of Mr. Mandela, TMX Group will make a contribution to the Nelson Mandela Foundation and the Nelson Mandela Children's Fund.
